This Co. Is a Chilean band that combines Post-Punk and New Wave into a hybrid between rock and electronic. Thanks to its particular sound and meticulously designed stage show it creates an intense experience. The band was formed initially under the name Macanudo as a duel of guitars and electronic bases by Jorge Christie and Nicolás Rebolledo (Chileno Medio). With the incorporation of Carlos Vergara (Federación de Boxeo, Crack) on the bass, the band began to call themselves This Co. and to consolidate, with new songs and a more mature sound, that which had already been started. In 2007 This Co. played the principal stages of the local scene, presenting with Nouvelle Vague at the EIMA festival and also at the Cada Canción Una Historia cycle, that received a very good mention in Rolling Stone magazine. The 2008 launch of their self-titled debut earned the support of the specialized and the general public. Various songs on the album have been remixed by Garbo, El Sueño de la Casa Propia (E.S.D.L.C.P.) and Fiat 600. This same year, with the incorporation of Cristián Aranda (Federación de Boxeo, Crack) on the drums presented with The Twelves in Kubix and launched the video of their single “As you know” preselected as one of the 10 most resquested on MTV. Recently and with new songs in their repertoire, This Co. toured Europe and played in Barcelona, Weimar and Berlin on July 2009, in four excellent presentations that confirmed the international projections of the band.
